These festive flower brooches are fun to make and look more complicated than they are! I used this tutorial. If you decide to make these, I recommend having a glue gun handy. I preferred using that over fabric glue. I seem to get a better hold. Yes! I like lots of marshmallows with my hot chocolate!
I used a flower to dress up a zippered pouch gift. Two gifts in one!
On another subject, a few readers asked what pattern I used for this quilt. The quilt is made with alternating Puss in the Corner Blocks. The following isn't meant to be a tutorial but more of a visual of how the blocks are pieced.
Alternate the solid and print fabric.
|Piece together as shown.|
|1 Center Square: 5 x 5 inches|
4 Small Squares: 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches
4 Rectangles: 2 3/4 x 5 inches
9 inch finished block
Here's another quilt I made using the same alternating block pattern.

It's cold and rainy here. It's time for me to grab a good book and my cup of marshmallows......I mean my hot chocolate.
See you soon. xxxx
